Letter to Normals (Part 3)

I may suddenly feel sensitive to noise, but I will never tell you to turn down the radio because I hate that. Noise is not one of my big fibro triggers unless I am having a very VERY bad day. My main triggers are humidity, rain, and the cold. When I encounter these conditions, it is very likely that I will not feel good. Even sitting in a car with high air conditioning for a short time can leave me in an immense amount of pain and just feeling completely wiped out. Othertimes, if we are out in a store or something I will just it on the floor or a bench or wherever I can sit. This is not because I am bored. It is because I am in too much pain. There are other  time when I may be in so much pain that I get very pale or even seem like I’m about to cry, but don’t be scared because nothing really bad is going to happen. It’s just because of fibromyalgia. There may be other times when I just need to plop down somewhere because I have no energy or am very tired or am in too much pain. “Other times there may be no warning, I may just [all of a sudden] feel awful.” Once again, I cannot control or predict when this will happen to me. I am just telling you things that have happened in the past. “I can’t warn you when this is likely to happen because there isn’t any way for me to know. Sometimes this is a real spoiler and I’m sorry.”
